A BOURNEMOUTH resident says she is retiring immediately after scooping a £643,000 online gaming jackpot.

The 59-year-old woman, who has not been named, won the prize with GentingBet's MegaJackPots Wheel of Fortune game.

Speaking after her win, she said: "I couldn’t believe it when the amount first came up - I initially thought I’d won £600.

"To win this sum of money has truly changed my life. I couldn’t sleep for two nights after thinking about what this will enable me to do for my family.

"I’m going to help both my children get on the property ladder and will help finance some much-needed home improvements to my mother’s house.

"It will also allow me to retire seven years earlier than planned."

Chris Worthington, head of casino at GentingBet, said: "Our online casinos are very popular amongst the GentingBet community and have provided an alternative to customers when our physical premises have been closed recently."
